This galvanized boat trailer axle is manufactured by Dexter Axle and has a 3500 lb. weight capacity. Dexter Axle galvanized boat trailer axles are Hot-Dipped Galvanized for optimal corrosion resistance and superior protection from salt water. Dexter Axle is a leader in axle manufacturing and features AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS. These axles are made of 2 inch x 2 inch x 1/4 inch thick square tubing.
The tapered spindle design on the 3500lb axle accommodates the following bearing and seal sizes:
-Inner Bearing - 68149 or 1 3/8 inch inner diameter
-Outer Bearing - 44649 or 1 1/16 inch inner diameter
-Grease seal - 1.719 inches inner diameter
The spindle features a Stainless Steel Wear Sleeve to allow for long term protection for your seal surface. This ensures your seal surface won't corrode away, meaning it will not pit or rust which would normally lead to letting water into your hub. Dexter Axle spindles also feature an E-Z Lube system, which allows easy greasing and regular maintenance of bearings. The grease travels through the center of the spindle and pushes out the old grease forward towards the front of the hub and out your dust cap, therefore replacing the old grease with new fresh grease. A castle nut and spindle washer are included on each spindle.
Our Axles DO NOT REQUIRE DRILLING OR WELDING!
Our MADE IN THE USA , Proprietary and Patent Pending Adjustable Spring Seats allow for adjustment to your specific measurements. These Hot-Dipped Galvanized Adjustable Spring Seats mean your axle will last longer, with no holes for saltwater and corrosion to hide. These Galvanized Adjustable Spring seats are included free of charge with the purchase of your axle.
Galvanized Axle Features:
Galvanized Axle Measurements:
This is a V-Bend axle with brake flange (meaning you can attach brakes to this axle).
Hub Face (Axle Track) refers to measuring from the OUTSIDE FACE of one hub to the OUTSIDE FACE of the opposing hub ACROSS the axle. Refer to axle measuring video for assistance.
Spring Seat Measurement refers to the measuring of your leaf springs from the center of one spring, across the axle to the center of the opposing spring. Getting assistance with this measurement from a friend is recommended. Refer to axle measuring video for assistance.
The Spring Seat Measurement is very important to ensure the safe and proper installation of this axle. If your Spring Seat measurement does not fall into the specified range, we cannot guarantee the successful installation or performance of your axle. Using a spring seat measurement that is too narrow will likely lead to your axle bending. Using a spring seat measurement that is too wide will lead to your tires rubbing on your trailer frame and/or leaf springs. Please verify that your Spring Seat Measurement falls into the range specified to avoid any problems.

Great quality product
Ordered this axle to replace one that was getting rusted out. Great quality product and was a perfect fit.

Installation was a breeze. Used in combination with the Kodiak Hub/Disc brake kit. Purchased to replace an older boat trailer axle that failed and was burning through tires.
Just got back from an 1,800 mile round trip from Ontario which included 72 miles of rough logging roads. Axle worked flawlessly. No uneven wear on tires anymore and bearings stayed cool as a cucumber. Very happy with this purchase.

When the bearings seized on my 1991 boat trailer, the local trailer shop said they needed 3 weeks to get a "custom" v-bend axle. I found Sturdy Built while searching online. They have informative videos on measuring for size which made fit very easy. I ordered this axle and as advertised it arrived in 3 days and was outstanding quality. I also ordered bearings/hubs/u-bolts along with the axle. The prices were excellent on everything. All the parts seems to be very high quality and look great on the trailer as well. I'm a very happy customer.

I made my most recent order over the phone. My sales person was knowledgeable, and answered all my questions quickly.
I installed all may parts and rebuilt everything from my boat trailer frame down to the ground. All the parts fit perfectly and when I did my test drive of the trailer, I was quick to see that the new parts fixed prior issues caused by poor manufacturing in the first place. Everything went together like it was supposed to. That made me very happy. I love the way the axels mounted to the leaf springs. I like the idea of not having any holes in the axel where salt water can get it and start the corrosion. My axels, leaf springs, and mounting hardware went together and the fit was exact. The instruction tips on your website were priceless!
My order was shipped promptly and arrived on time. I received them in new condition.
